Shutdown Obamacare Today at Noon Local Time

Today at 12pm noon local time we are asking Tea Party Patriots across the country to show up at their Senator's or Congressman's local offices. The media, the President, the Senate Democrats, the Ruling Elite is Washington, DC, and now MoveOn.org are trying to blame this shutdown on the Tea Party. The timeline of events over the last few weeks (seen below) shows that Harry Reid's refusal to compromise is what led us to this shutdown.


We can't let these people clog the airwaves with this rhetoric. The American people have consistently, poll after poll, said that they want Obamacare repealed and the House of Representatives (the legislative body that is supposed to most closely reflect the will of the American people) is doing just that.

We encourage you to make signs that say things like:

Obamacare is destroying jobs

Time Line of Continuing Resolution Debate:
Friday, 9/20/13 - The House of Representatives passed a Continuing Resolution that would fully fund the government (including things that Republicans don't like) while at the same time defunding Obamacare.
Result: House Republicans compromised on spending that we'd like to see cut in exchange for defunding Obamacare.

Friday, 9/27/13 - The Senate stripped the defunding language out of the House passed Continuing Resolution and sent it back to the House.
Result: Harry Reid and Senate Democrats refused to compromise.

Saturday, 9/28/13 - The House of Representatives added two amendments to the Senate revised Continuing Resolution to delay Obamacare for one year (far from what we were originally willing to agree to) and repeal the medical device tax.
Result: House Republicans compromised away from defunding to delaying Obamacare for one year.

Monday, 9/30/13 - The Senate stripped the two amendments from the House passed Continuing Resolution and sent it back to the House.
Result: Harry Reid and Senate Democrats refuse to compromise one inch on Obamacare.

Monday, 9/30/13 - The House of Representatives responded by adding language to the Continuing Resolution to delay the individual mandate for a year and to take away the health care subsidies Members of Congress and their staffs received from the Office of Personnel Management ruling earlier this year. 
Result: House Republicans compromised away from delaying Obamacare for one year to delaying the individual mandate for a year and requiring that Congress live under Obamacare just like the rest of the American people.

Monday, 9/30/13 - The Senate voted to table the House passed continuing resolution.
Result: Harry Reid and Senate Democrats refused to compromise. 

Monday, 9/30/13 - The House appointed conferees and sent a message to the Senate requesting a conference meeting to resolve their differences.
